The Saga Continues : Westboro Baptist Church to burn Qurans if Dove doesn't
Ocala ^ | SEPTEMBER 8, 2010 | Chad Smith

Posted on 09/09/2010 2:46:24 PM PDT by RobinMasters

Westboro Baptist Church, the small Topeka, Kan., church that pickets funerals of American soldiers to spread its message that God is punishing the country for being tolerant of homosexuals, has vowed to hold a Quran burning if Gainesville's Dove World Outreach Center calls its off.

"WBC burned the Koran once – and if you sissy brats of Doomed america bully Terry Jones and the Dove World Outreach Center until they change their plans to burn that blasphemous tripe called the Koran, then WBC will burn it (again), to clearly show you some things," the church announced in a news release this week.

And Jones in the last day has indicated some reluctance to burn the Muslim holy book.

The Canadian Press reported Thursday that in an interview with a Canadian radio station, Jones said the church was considering calling it off.

Just when Phelps couldn’t look any more idiotic he outdoes himself...he’s going to burn korans to protest 9/11 when for the last nine years he’s been proclaiming that 9/11 was God’s punishment for America.

Westboro LOVES attention and the media has proven that THIS story gets a lot.

Maybe Phelps should burn some copies of Al Gore’s manfiesto. It drove a man to commit an act of terrorism at Discovery tv last week.

Sorry, but the koran burning thing has already been used up.

Well the Preacher has made a deal not to burn the Korans if they move the Mosque somewhere else. Good.

He said he canceled it because he said the guy in New York agreed to move the mosque. Anyone really believe that?

Isn’t this the same Westboro that makes its sorry living hating America, condoning 9/11 and cheering the deaths of our soldiers?

If this won’t convince you that this whole Koran-burning stunt was staged by liberal trolls to make our side look bad, what will?

Some podunk announces he’s going to burn Korans, and now we have people right here on FR insisting we NO LONGER HAVE A CHOICE except to burn the Koran, or we’ll be appeasing the enemy. Now, who’s the slave—someone who says “I don’t want to burn a Koran because it’s stupid and pointless,” or someone who says, “We have no choice but to burn the Koran?”

At least this forced the worlds attention on Muslim intolerance. They say they’re a religion of peace and wish to bridge the gap, tolerate others and live in peace but then the whole Muslim world erupts over even the threat of Koran burning. But banning or burning our bible, our flag and our institutions is perfectly okay.

Sure. It will destroy Obama and the far Left Communist Media. This backwoods Preacher has brought Obama and the Communists to their knees. It is perfectly reasonable to move the Mosque and not burn the Korans. Now if they do not move it...he can still burn the Korans. God works in mysterious ways and calls the unexpected to duty. Who could argue with this ‘deal’?

They're all related to each other, and they're lawyers. They were a law firm when they were helping Al Gore's campaign. They didn't become a "church" until they decided to try to destroy the Christian image. Christians voted for George Bush. Christians became the enemy.

Maybe Phelps is onto something good for once. Hundreds of entities announce Koran burnings, but who knows if and when they actually take place? Especially since the media won’t cover the burnings?

Or how about this one? Announce that a plane will be flown over mosques and pig blood will be dropped on the minarets.
But we aren’t telling you when or where.

You have to wonder if Jones is afraid of being killed if he burns the koran. That would mean he either has no faith that God will protect him or he doesn’t want to tempt fate. Either way it doesn’t say much for his faith.

You don’t think the media would cover the koran burning? If they didn’t it would still be all over youtube because the Rev Jones would film it.

By the way, why are preachers named Jones always the weird ones?

That they are. It is part of the ‘religion’ to lie to the Infidel...us. We will either succumb or destroy them. The minute we leave Iraq and Afghanistan they will elect radical Islamists just like the Palestinians. You can not deal with these fanatics rationally. We will either fight or die in the end. We have to beat the American Left and the Muslims.

Fox and one of the alphabets said they would not cover. But yes, you are right, youtube would get it for sure.

HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. With the right setup, couldn’t you do one a day? Show the paper from that day, then burn the Koran? Welcome to today’s Koran burning, dedicated to a victim of 9/11? Show the paper, read the name, burn the book. We burn one a day until they agree to move the mosque.

One thing about blackmail, it can go both ways.

Someday Phelps is going to meet up with a man who has nothing to lose and a burning desire to beat him to a pulp.

That man may go to jail but he will be celebrated by many and find that 15 minutes of fame so many in our society seek.

Then post it on youtube. I don’t know how to post on youtube. I’ve got a camcorder that’s old as the hills and the computer cable is long gone. Went to panasonic and was told they no longer make them. So I won’t be posting anything on youtube ‘cause I don’t plan on ever buying another camcorder or a fancy cell phone. I’m an erudite and proud of it.

And before anyone asks, NO, I did not write their press release, although it reads like I did.
